Organizers of Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2021 recently released a new wave of  guests for this year’s event!

Those that enjoy the music from their favorite series can look forward to the performances of rock bands Burnout Syndromes, 7 Billion Dots, Magic of LiFE  and Rhythmic Toy World. Attendees will also learn more about about them in each of their Q&A sessions.

Many anime fans will recognize Burnout Syndromes for their opening theme songs from “Haikyu!!” (“Fly High!!”, “Hikariare” and “Phoenix”), “Dr. STONE” (“Good Morning World!”) and recently “Those Snow White Notes” (“Blizzard”).

7 BILLION DOTS hit the anisong scene soon after their 2018 debut. “Stay With Me” was the opening  for “Grandblue Fantasy the Animation” second season and “Maybe I” was used as the ending in episodes 151-167 of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations”. Their latest collaboration is with the Spring 2021 series “Mazica Party” with an ending theme song under the same name.

Originally known as DIRTY OLD MEN, Magic of LiFE has been making music since 2007. The band worked quite a bit for the “Yowamushi Pedal” anime team, performing the second opening and featuring in the second ending of the first season and then performing the second ending of “Grande Road”. They also had a song in the “Spare Bike” special and the drama adaptation. They also provided the ending to 2016 series “JOKER GAME” and opening for the second half of “Zoids Wild Zero”.

Rhythmic Toy World, formed in 2009, had their song “Boku no Koe” chosen as the opening for “Yowamushi Pedal Glory Line”. Their songs “Iroha ni Hoeto” and  “Dear Mr. FOOL” were also picked at ending theme songs for the ongoing TV Tokyo variety show “Goddotan”.

Bryce Papenbrook will be participating in this year’s event. Many heard him recently reprise his role as Inosuke Hashibira in the “Demon Slayer” film. Other fan favorites include Makoto Naegi and Nagito Komaeda of the “Danganronpa” series and Fujita of “Dorohedoro”. These are just a few in his long list of roles he has done in animation, TV and video games.

Zeno Robinson recently announced on his Twitter that he’ll be Taiga Kagami again for the dubbed second season of “Kuroko no Basketball”.  He also received Best Voice Actor Performance (English) the past Crunchyroll Anime Awards for his performance in “My Hero Academia” Season Four as Hawks. Fans will get to know about this fellow fan and industry star.

As mentioned in the previous announcement, interested attendees can join this year’s Crunchyroll-Hime Cosplay Cup. Sign-up are open until Monday June 7th. Fan panel submissions will be open until Friday June 11th. Preorders for the commemorative V-CRX 2021 shirt will close on June 30th.
